get to the state department now and our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty. jill, what more do we know about how the hostage crisis ended today? >> well, john, you can definitely say that it was very violent. in fact, we're still trying to pin down the numbers. you know, as the algerian news agency said, 23 hostages were killed. 32 terrorists were killed. but that area was mined. and, in fact, the british foreign secretary just talked about that, that it was booby trapped. so as now they go in to clear it and make it safe, there is a lot that they may not know. and is still not a clear -- the operation is over, but it's not a cleared-out space. they could find things as they go through. let's listen to the defense secretary, leon panetta. he said it very well this afternoon. >> with regards to the numbers of americans, we are still trying to get accurate information about just exactly how many americans were located there and exactly what happened to them. >> and so that is really the key. everyone who had people in that location, at that plant, is trying right now. tho

straight to jill dougherty at the state department. jill, what can you tell us about this man who has lost his life? >> erin, the latest information we're getting is the name of that american who did die. it's coming in a statement from victoria nuland who is the spokesperson for the state department. she said that his name was fredrick buttaccio and he died in that hostage situation. the state department is expressing its deepest condolences to the family and also the friends of fredrick buttaccio. but they're not giving any details and that is one thing that has plagued it's information coming out of algeria ever since this began. we do know from a u.s. official that six americans, however, were freed or escaped, and others still are unaccounted for. earlier friday victoria nuland also said that some americans are being held hostage. so the bottom line here is that of it continues to be an operation with very, very few details coming out from the algerians. secretary clinton was asked about that friday, and on the one hand the u.s. and other countries are very unhappy about the lack

that man and the other americans we are aware of tonight. let's get straight to jill dougherty at the state department. first, jill, what can you tell us about the american who died? >> there are not a lot of details. we can confirm according to a senior u.s. official that one american is dead. family has been notified that this person has died. but other than that, where they died, how they died, and maybe when they died, is not clear. after all, this began three days ago. and then the operation has been ongoing for two days. so not clear. a lot of those details. i can tell you that this afternoon, before this news broke, secretary of state hillary clinton did express condolences to the families of those people, people from several countries, who died in this terrorist act. and yet at this point we don't know many details at all of how many died, how many survived. it's simply not known. >> jill dougherty, thank you very much. of course,do know there are some americans still unaccounted for tonight. we are also hearing the first words though from another american hostage who is safe

obviously a very fluid situation. cnn foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty and former cia officer bill baird join me now. jill, you've been working your sources today. what is the latest? >> we believe obviously this happened at a gas field. if you look at the map, it's in eastern algeria. that's 37 miles from the libyan border. and that's important because they believe that the people who carried this out came in from the east, in from libya. they went to this gas field. it's owned by bp. the algerians and the norwegians. and they carried out this attack. apparently what happened is they had a previous attack. it didn't work. and then moved to another part of this complex. you can see it's quite large. and that's where they took these hostages. they say that they have 41 people that may or may not be true. initially, the reports were there were seven americans. there are probably about three. but there are also japanese, british, norwegian and irish at least, anderson. >> and bob, the man claiming responsibility for this, his name is mokhtar belmokhtar. what do you know a

this clot near her brain. jill dougherty is live at the state department. a lot of people want to know how she's doing. clearly she has an important role. do we know if her progress is getting better or are they keeping us abreast? >> they haven't issued anything today but yesterday they did -- her two doctors issued a report. it was pretty in-depth. at least technical explaining where the blood clot was located and what they were doing is giving blood thinners. it's important to point out it's not on the brain itself. it's between the brain and the skull. so it's actually kind of an area in a way that vein is isolated from the actual brain. that would be the danger. that's why they were saying she did no have the stroke or neurological problems. so what they do is they shrink that. using these blood thinners, what they are doing now is determining how much to give her, how strong a dose, et cetera, depends on the person. and once they determine that, once they have it locked down that that's her recipe, then they potentially can let her leave the hospital. so that's what we're waiting
